The murder toll has now risen to 51 with the murders of a Moruga woman and a man from Toco.

This morning, at about 2.40 am, Ishma Ali, 39, from L’anse Mitan Road Moruga was sleeping in her home when she was awoken by her dogs’ barking. 

Ali’s husband, Lincoln Samaroo got up to see what was outside. He was shot in the left leg. Fearing for his life, the man ran into bushes to evade the shooters. 

He returned to the scene with the police and found Ali’s body on the ground. She was shot once in the chest. 

There are no motives for this shooting.

Investigations continue. 

In an unrelated killing police say the shooting death of 20-year-old Shaquille Wilson is linked to his involvement in the drug trade.

According to police, around 10.45 pm last night, Wilson of Anglais Road, Cumana was at home when his sisters heard gun shots. They later found him bleeding. The young man was taken to the Toco Health Facility where was pronounced dead.
